Post Card Swap with Artists in Blogland

I recently participated in a postcard swap with a community of artists at Artists in Blogland.
I used a 12x12 piece of brown chipboard and cut it into 4 - 6x6 squares. 
I painted/inked it with different Distress Inks and then mod podged pieces of homemade paper to it. 
The swirl stamp was inked on with Staz On.
I added some vintage ephemera photos (copies) and then edged them with oil pastels.
The last thing I did was add the quotes. I used black Sharpie markers and white Signo pens.
"I did my best and it was enough."
"Believe you can."
"Do what you love."
"Sing your bravest song."
I have received two post cards in return so far and will posts those soon.  I had lots of fun and am always glad to do something fun and creative.
